The Center for Interfaith Cooperation laments the loss of life in Germany
With one voice, we at the Center for Interfaith Cooperation (CIC) condemn the recent murder of two people outside a synagogue in Halle, Germany, on Yom Kippur. As we have seen with hate-driven massacres in Pittsburgh, New Zealand, and far too many other places, the chilling effects of this act of violence can ripple across the globe. We want to reassure people of all religious traditions Central Indiana: You are not alone. We are standing with you to ensure you feel safe and welcome as you worship.
Incidents of antisemitism and crimes that are driven by religious hatred are on the rise in Indiana. The killings in Germany are particularly troubling because of killer sought to hunt down a synagogue full of Jews celebrating Yom Kippur, the holiest of days on the Jewish calendar.
